Just a few days after the opening of its new Artist Relations Centre in London, Roland sprung a surprise product launch on Thursday, announcing a new entry-level electronic drum kit, the TD-1DMK.
The TD-1DMK is an entry-level electronic drum kit with Roland’s double-mesh pads and education features courtesy of onboard coach functions and free Melodics for V-Drums training software for Mac/Windows. Roland says the package: ‘…makes it an ideal choice for beginning drummers and practicing students, as well as adults who want to get back into drumming later in life. Delivering a fulfilling drumming experience in a compact kit that can be played quietly with headphones, the TD-1DMK is an infinitely inspiring instrument that will launch a lifetime of drumming satisfaction and enjoyment’.
The lightweight kit (just 15.5 lb./7 kg,) comes with 15 pre-set kit sounds and Melodics for V-Drums software. Parents will be relieved to hear that ‘…the TD-1DMK’s pads are quieter than other electronic drums too, allowing children to practice for extended periods without limitations’.
